Construction Law


Construction industry is one of the main branches of economy. It is also a barometer signalising the upcoming investment boom or the possible downturn. Despite its importance, the construction business suffers from  one of the highest payment gridlocks. It also suffers from many bankruptcies affecting not only the bankrupt and its creditors, but also other companies and entities.

Success connected with concluding the contract on construction works very often leads to problems with executing remuneration for the works that have been done. This applies not only to big investments, but also to smaller local projects. Entrepreneurs have to claim for their payments in courts – and usually this is a result of badly concluded contract or bad decisions made during negotiations. In construction cases very often we have to deal with issues of contractual penalties and/or amendments introduced during the project, including architectural changes affecting the financial aspect of the contract and its final profitability. Litigation is very often an effect of negligence in the process of completing required documentation or, very often, it comes from the lack of any written agreement at all.
